This limited edition giclee print on museum grade archival paper is a reproduction of an acrylic on canvas painting by Tim Lane.
This painting is from a series of works by Tim Lane called ‘Bacchanalia’ The bacchanalia were wild and mystic festivals of the Roman god Bacchus: the wine god. The term has since come to describe any form of drunken revelry. This series of small scale works takes as loose inspiration this Classical festival of ultimate decadence and animalistic pleasure.
Here, the revellers are seen on their way to a modern fancy dress party wearing costumes and carrying attributes reflective of their own inner hopes, dreams and fears on their journey through life
These two partygoers have decided to dress up in the head of ‘King Kong’, employing a mask of bravado that belies the fragility of the bodies that poke out underneath.
Tim graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2004 with a first class degree in Illustration. Notable group exhibitions include Grotesques and Anatomy with Antlers Gallery, ‘Out of Darkness’ Literary Festival at The Globe at Hay, Hay-on-Wye and ‘Mortal: Life, Death and Memento Mori’ Clifton, Bristol. Tim has had two solo shows at Knifesmith Gallery in Bristol ‘The Innocents?’ 2009 and ‘Revelations’ 2010.
